In Drydock for Creativity

Maybe it's because I've got the same pain in my back I've had for the last month. Lack of "core" exercises or just crappy genetics? I have a muscle that just won't quit hurting. Maybe it's too much sitting in front of the laptop. Sitting jobs are probably unnatural but they're still more popular than most unskilled labor. I'm in a brain freeze here. I thought maybe just writing at random would loosen up the creative juices. We'll see...

I saw that Obama wants to lengthen both school terms and school days. I wonder how the teachers are going to get paid? Most states are looking for ways to cut teacher salaries already. The Japanese and Europeans that are whipping our honor students go to school less hours than us already.

If people read this, then they're probably lagging in creativity too.

Firestone Tires in Anaheim

Whether you're looking for Firestone tires in Anaheim, or 100% honest automotive service and repair, Mitchell Tire Service is your best bet. Dave Mitchell of Mitchell tire service is a straight up guy who will always call you back to let you know you may not need that repair you just ordered. "You still have a couple of thousand miles on those back brakes" is something I've heard from the Anaheim Firestone dealer on more than one occasion during my 12 plus years of doing business with him.

All Quiet - Even the Cat

I'm sitting in my sister's house on the couch catching up on some followup emails and some web updates for a client. The sun is finally peeking through the window (it's rising later these days) and all is quiet- even the cat who barely looked up for this picture.

Orange County Web Design | Sleeper Cars and Websites

Orange County is a haven of so many kinds of web design from Art to Zen and everything between including Real Estate and web design itself.

This video demonstrates the potential of a relatively plain vanilla website when SEO is managed by Wordpress installed on the server.

Sleepy In Starbucks

It's 93 degrees and humid from a far-off hurricane. The California summer slowly wanes with its typical wildfires and schools gearing back up. Gmail was down for over 1/2 hour but the concept of cloud computing is simply proven- all my email, including that which arrived while the interface was temporarily down, is there. I continued working on other things and even checked the email via another interface.

I didn't have to call Tech support or the IT department. They were on the problem before I even knew it existed. It didn't matter what time it was... I didn't have to wait for someone to show up at the office or respond to a trouble ticket and assign it to a tech. It was simply back up- maintaining a 99.9% uptime with apologies to everyone.

Yeah, Gmail isn't under my control at all. Isn't that nice?
